Circle of Spring- Magical Moment!

Circle of Spring- Magical Moment!

I just had a magical moment with my Circle of Spring stamp set and I’m super excited that I can share it with all of you.

It’s also an Artisan Blog Hop day which makes this a double bonus.  We should all break out in dancing and cheer now. Really!


I was going through my Artisan box of love that came in the mail and trying to figure out what I would use to create for this hop and when you aren’t feeling the creativity it can be a little overwhelming to know what to pull and create with.


Down deep in my box was the stamp set Circle of Spring.  This one sweet stamp set flooded my brain with ideas and literally the magic began.

Circle of Spring, Stampin' Up!



Before I even had the paper out, I had the idea floating in my head.  I wanted all the things I love.

  • Typeset Designer Series Paper
  • Watercoloring
  • Tiny trinkets like pearls, tiny flowers, and very thin Washi Tape from a Project Life kit
  • Doilies… it’s always on my favorites list

With everything set in front of me, I jumped in.

Creating Joy!

As I said earlier when I first started this project I had to dig deep into my Artisan box to find this little gem of a stamp set, Circle of Spring.  I also had to dig deep to find my creativity. When that moment finally kicked in and the magic began to happen- I felt GREAT about the project I was creating… it brings joy. SO MUCH JOY!!

I hope it brings joy to you.  Circle of Spring is a beautiful stamp set, perfect for this season.  The wreath can be created in numerous ways and one that I will be using many more times.

Weekend Stamping

I had to put my bestie on a plane Saturday morning.  Needless to say I pouted most of Saturday after she left but found myself in my stamp room for therapy.  I missed her contagious giggle when we stamp together.  Then of course late night blogging together was fun too.  I think she left a piece of Colorado however.  Here in Florida we have a freeze warning.  WHAT? My fruit trees are lit up like Christmas Trees and blankets over them to stay warm.  It doesn’t typically get this cold in November.


Since it was cold I stamped more.  Can’t beat that!

I started off with the Peaceful Wreath stamp set.


I wanted to keep this card very simple so the wreath and all it’s detail stands out. The best thing- this set has a coordinating framelit- Wonderful Wreath Framelits. Yippie!!

Peaceful Wreath, Stampin' Up!

I love the font on the greeting “Peace!”  Very crisp image when stamped. I love how it looks on Watermelon Wonder cardstock.


The Watermelon Wonder really made the card pop.

I created the circles with the Go Wild Designer Series Paper.  Great patterns in this 6 x 6 Pack.
Each image has a scripture verse.  LOVE!
